Asbestos exposure typically occurs without the person exposed being aware of the fibers they constantly inhale.
Asbestos fibers are tiny. Once asbestos fibers are released into the air, they can remain airborne for a long period of time. All that is needed for asbestos exposure to take place is inhalation of asbestos fibers.
People who do not work with asbestos can nevertheless become exposed to asbestos if another person in the same household happens to have asbestos fibers on his or her clothing.
Thus, for example, a stay-at-home wife of someone who works with asbestos can become exposed to asbestos when she inhales the asbestos fibers on the work clothes of her husband.
People can also become exposed to asbestos simply by working or living in an area that is close to a facility that handles asbestos products.
